If the offensive line is USC’s weak spot, it has a dilemma with its best lineman, Alijah Vera-Tucker.
USC seems ready to move Vera-Tucker to left tackle, which makes sense because Kedon Slovis needs protection. But . . . usually it is better to move someone from the outside to the inside part of the line than vice versa.
So there is a risk in moving Vera-Tucker. He is a safe bet at guard. Tackle is an open question. USC seems to think it is awful at tackle, as it pursues every available grad transfer.
So maybe moving Vera-Tucker is worth the risk. But it isn’t a slam dunk.
